He-111 water radiators

Recommended Posts

Hello,

what is the key-command to open the water radiators in the He111?

I've tried the "water shutter open" keys but they don't work on this plane (knobs in the cockpit don't move and in fact engines overheat). Any advice?

Thanks

"Water radiator shutters control axis"  <--- If you assigned keys to that, try reassigning.

 

You can assign an axis or keys.

Thanks JimTM, now the water radiator knobs actually move!

Nevertheless, after few minutes of flight (I can reach only few hundred meters high) the engines overheat even if I slightly reduce power and rpm.

I've checked videoclips without finding any significant procedural difference. I keep trying these takeoffs :)

Are your oil radiators open?

the 111 has both oil and water radiators (most inline engines do) but IIRC the version we have has the Jumo 211 engines (same as the JU87) and if i'm honest it's an awful engine, woefully underpowered. this was a secondary choice as they wanted the DB206's for the 111.

 

anyway, my point it that it's inline, you need to manage your RPM, Water radiators, and oil radiators to keep those overworking Jumo's cool, obv easier on winter maps but doable in summer with practice.

 

personally, I fly the Ju88 a lot because the 111 frustrates me.
